why use e learning
Why use e-learning?
  • In preparing and planning a learning experience it is important to recognise where e-learning can enhance learning.
  • e-Learning – like all other tools – offers both advantages and disadvantages.
  • e-Learning is not appropriate for all situations but can offer many flexible and creative advantages for teaching and learning.

What can e-learning offer my learners?

e-Learning offers learners 24/7 access to materials and support.

e-Learning enables more engaging materials to be created for a range of abilities and preferred learning styles.

e-Learning encourages the development of an independent learning culture.

Any time, any place learning
  • The practitioners and learners in the following video clip reveal how e-learning resources can change classroom practice and how an organisation evolved techniques to support learning outside of the classroom.
  • e-Learning can offer learners access to materials and support any time, any place.
  • View the video clip of the use of e-learning at Fermanagh College, a college with a rural catchment of widely dispersed populations.

solving problems using e learning
Solving problems using e-learning
  • Let’s start with existing practice
    • Print-based problem-solving scenarios and experiments are used to support face-to-face group work. Solutions are assessed by a practitioner.
  • The e-learning option?
    • Online multimedia scenarios and simulations provide ‘real life’ interactive learning opportunities. Solutions can be discussed through asynchronous communication tools such as video conferencing.
  • The e-learning advantage?
    • Learners work collaboratively to identify solutions and test their conceptual understanding through peer-to-peer discussion.
  • An example – Designing play area
applying concepts and skills using e learning
Applying concepts and skills using e-learning
  • Let’s start with existing practice
    • Classroom or homework tasks require learners to replicate or apply what they have seen demonstrated.
  • The e-learning option?
    • Interactive whiteboards and voting systems enable all learners to participate in self-testing activities. Simple interactive activities acquire an element of fun.
  • The e-learning advantage?
    • Effective use of interactive functions in some technologies can engage and motivate learners, reducing disengagement with repetitive tasks. Learners can participate kinaesthetically to reinforce their learning.
  • Examples – Cashier practice and Life and times of Buddha
Lets now take a closer look at what advantages e-learning offers you in your practice…

Lets play the e-learning advantage.
